Dear Mr. Gable - Karen Chandler


Teacher's Pet

Dear Mr. Gable
Karen Chandler
Arranged and Conducted by Jack Pleis
Strand SL 1028

From the back cover: About Karen Chandler - At four, she made her professional debut with her father's band in Rexburg, Idaho (her birthplace). Sang with the University Band at Brigham Young. Career to date is vital, vigorous and varied. Vocalist with name bands; featured on own program on NBC; headlined at such clubs as Copacabana, New York; appearances on such TV shows as Perry Como and Jack Paar; toured as star of musical comedies like "Say Darling," "Kiss Me Kate," "Finian's Rainbow," "Brigadoon"; recorded a string of hit songs including million-plus seller "Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me."

Dear Mr. Gable is Karen's first album. The experience and background, the dramatic study and rounded preparation are clear in the sense of feeling projected when she sings. The arrangements by Jack Pleis are fresh, fluent. Here is more than a tribute to the legend that is Clark Gable. Here is a tribute to the warmth of a girl called Karen Chandler. – Mort Goode
